The research adopted two tools: testing the self-concept consisting of (25) paragraphs. and a test of aesthetic preference consists of 20 paragraphs. The search results were: The research sample showed a concept with a degree (acceptable) and in favor of females, as the average percentages for the sample as a whole (50,98). The research sample showed an aesthetic preference for a moderate degree, as the average percentages for the sample as a whole (62,6) were in favor of females. There were differences in the concept of self and in favor of females. The average percentages for females (53,65) and among males (48,32). There were also differences in aesthetic preference in favor of females, as the average percentages of females (64.9) and males (60.4). There is a significant positive correlative relationship between the aesthetic preference and the concept of the self. The correlation coefficient of the sample is all (0,86) and is more positive for females than for males.</p> Elham Ali Baiwi Al-Annoz Copyright (c) 2020 Journal Port Science Research Thu, 15 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0300 Application of the Iraqi University College of Education to the standards of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education NCATE <p>The research aims to identify the extent of the application of the Iraqi University College of Education NCATE standards, the researcher used the descriptive method has been selected research community has reached (107) teaching and to achieve the goal of the research prepared a questionnaire consisting of (49) paragraph distributed on (6) criteria and the researcher verified its sincerity The results of the research indicated that the degree of application of the College of Education NCATE criteria came to a high degree for both the fifth standard and the first criterion, while the rest of the standards came to apply those standards to a low degree.</p> Muhanned Majeed Rasheed Copyright (c) 2020 Journal Port Science Research Thu, 15 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0300 Styles & Approaches of the city image in students' paintings of Fine Arts Academy <p>one can say that the social and urban environment could influence the general culture and establish a vision for individuals on the place and on its symbols and realistic imaginary image too. In light of this, the paintings' outputs will be one of the means of expression about the places, and how to recall and reuse them, and then, they form the styles through which the identity of the artistic work can be achieved or what it can be called as an originality or individuality. This research analyses the phenomenon of drawing the city by the students of Fine Arts College as well as follows up its educational and evaluation courses which are based upon the awareness and the metaphorical ability of the students and its development.</p> Zahraa Subhi khzail Copyright (c) 2020 Journal Port Science Research Thu, 15 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0300 Facial Expression Recognition Using Fast Walidlet Hybrid Transform <p>Automatic analysis of facial expressions is rapidly becoming an area of intense interest in computer vision and artificial intelligence research communities. In this paper an approach is presented for facial expression recognition of the six basic prototype expressions (i.e., joy, surprise, anger, sadness, fear, and disgust) based on Facial Action Coding System (FACS). The approach is attempting to utilize a combination of different transforms (Walid let hybrid transform); they consist of Fast Fourier Transform; Radon transform and Multiwavelet transform for the feature extraction. Korhonen Self Organizing Feature Map (SOFM) then used for patterns clustering based on the features obtained from the hybrid transform above. The result shows that the method has very good accuracy in facial expression recognition. However, the proposed method has many promising features that make it interesting. The approach provides a new method of feature extraction in which overcome the problem of the illumination, faces that varies from one individual to another quite considerably due to different age, ethnicity, gender and cosmetic also it does not require a precise normalization and lighting equalization. An average clustering accuracy of 94.8% is achieved for six basic expressions, where different databases had been used for the test of the method.</p> Walid Amin Mahmoud, Jane Jaleel Stephan, Anmar Abdel Wahab Razzak Copyright (c) 2020 Journal Port Science Research Wed, 11 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0300
